Eddie Money's Shakin' With the Money Man was released in 1997, and was recorded at a live concert around that time at the Galaxy Theater in Santa Ana, CA. The set is only about 60 minutes and is limited to 12 songs. He performs his biggest hits ("Two Tickets to Paradise," "Baby Hold On," and "Take me Home Tonight"), but the set list is fatally short. The surreal concert starts off with a young boy (possible a Money child) introducing the rock star, and the rest of the show has a strange quality to it. It has been rumored that Eddie Money dubbed some of his vocals in the studio, and his voice is strong here. His stage presence is cheesy and embarrassing, however. The show is fun, but 60 minutes is paltry. Overall, this is not filmed particularly well and is just not enough of a concert. Rent, but don't buy, this one.
